I'm sorry to interrupt, but I have just seven minutes and I have already used up half of that time.
Clause 22 does nonetheless provide some protection to persons who might be subject to a strip search request. In 2017, I imagine that no one would allow themselves to be strip searched in front of all the passengers at a station or in an air terminal
According to subclauses 22(1), (3) and (4), as well as subclauses 25(1) and (2), it is not that easy for an American preclearance officer to request a strip search. Subclauses 26(1) and (2) provide that the person in question may ask to see a senior office.
Let me play the devil's advocate and say that these provisions include numerous protections for a person subject to a strip search request. The person does in any case have the right to withdraw. I will get back to that later if I have the time. This right bothers us a bit because it appears that the person is being detained.
Do you agree with me? What do you think of all these subclauses that seem to protect someone who is subject to a strip search request?
